According to two new sources Sony has scheduled an announcement in three weeks. The NEX-7 successor will be announced for sure and likely be named A7000. And also the new A79 could be announced on the same day.
I also know a Full Frame A-mount camera will come for sure but I don’t know if it’s in February already or in March.
I am also working on rumors about two camera surprises. Sorry if I don’t share them now but I am using what I know to double check the info. But I cannot hide my excitement, Sony will deliver quite some surprises if what I got turns out to be true!
That said the new name strategy for Sony seems to be:
Axxx (like A5000, A3000 or A7000) for the APS-C E-mount series
Axx (like A79 or A99) for APS-C or FF A-mount cameras
Ax (like the A7-A7r) for the FF E-mount series.
Pretty confusing :)
